Recently bout a 3TB time capsule to replace my 500 GB.  Set up time capsule to serve as my router for wi-fi throughout house.  Connected by ethernet to my iMac, and wireless network set up for other iMac, kid's iPads and Apple TV.  However, we were using 2 airport expresses to extend network throught house.  Since I hooked up new time capsule, AE continually flash amber. Tried to reset to factory defaults on AE; tried power up and down of time capsule/base station, but nothing works.  Went into Airport utility and did not even see the Airport Expresses being recognized or identified.


What am I not doing?

    Try resetting them again, and turning the Express off and on again. As a last resort use an Ethernet cable and see if the light goes green.

    If you have factory resetted go to the AirPort fan and select "AirPort Express..." and this will make sure you are setting up the Express.
